John Fowles’ classic story of possession, obsession and love is considered one of the great works in modern literature. Frederick Clegg appears to be an ordinary, slightly shabby clerk. When he wins a fortune in the lottery he buys a remote country house, furnishing it with everything he thinks a beautiful woman could desire . He then abducts a girl he has worshiped from afar, imprisoning her in the cellar amid his butterfly collection with tragic, electrifying results.
